2015. that's because it rained at all. the previous 35 or 36 days didn't have a drop of rainfall but now finally, it is raining. great time lapse from our live neighborhood network. potrero hill looking down on the city waves and waves of rain lots of cloud cover but temperatures that were in the mid-60s. this was a warm air mass coming up from the south and it's wet right now. it is really wet. but not everywhere in the bay area. the north bay you are now getting the break. but look at all the rain from san jose -- if you were to hop on 880 north out of san jose all the way to oakland, it would be pouring the entire trip. if you were to do 680 from san jose north to danville, it would be pouring during the entire trip. we know a couple of thousand folks are doing that right now so a lot of rainfall in the east bay and south bay but look at the peninsula the rain stopped even though temporarily in san mateo. overnight tonight these are your overnight lows. close to 60 in san francisco and oakland. 55 for vallejo, san jose 53 degrees. the setup is this. the train tracks in the
6:44 pm
atmosphere are set. they are laid down. they are not moving for the next couple of days. that brought storm number one here. now, why couldn't we get rain for 36 days but now we can? it's because the blocking ridge of high pressure is blocking the rain from arizona and actually that's allowing the train tracks and that jet stream to move right over top of us piling in all of that tropical moisture. this is round number 1. after a break tomorrow you see that gap right there, that's your mixture of showers and sun breaks tomorrow. we are going to get a little before the sunshine even on saturday afternoon. i have circled round 2. this is the next storm that will use the same train tracks in the atmosphere to move back into the bay area. that will give us a pretty sloppy day coming up on sunday but more much-needed rain. wave number one moves out tonight. the wind is done by midnight. the rain probably done by 9:00 or 10:00 this evening. just scattered showers. on sunday wave 2, more rainfall coming up adding to our already impressive rainfall totals in the north bay. some of you upwards of 8" of rain by monday morning. the east bay one to three inches of rainfall. south bay one or two inches of rainfall for you. and san francisco and san mateo
6:45 pm
county, including you in half moon bay, one to three inches of rainfall. wind big issue all day. 70-mile-per-hour wind gusts in mount diablo. 50 miles per hour in half moon bay still elevated even 11:00 tonight 30 or 40-mile-per-hour wind gusts. we roll through the night now. and get into tomorrow, and you can watch the wind gusts really begin it decrease. we're talking about winds going down to 20 or 30 miles per hour by 3 or 4:00. and then we are looking at the winds diminishing more into the weekend. we are looking at wind dying down. we are looking at the rain relaxing for a bit. but then on sunday, here comes the next round. highs will be in the 60s tomorrow. highs will be in the 60s on sunday with that rain come back again. and next week, we go back to the sunshine. monday through friday of next week, we likely will be sunny. we'll be back to the 70s by next wednesday. so the rain calming down tonight. picking back up once again on sunday morning. that's your forecast. >> thank you, paul. we have been hearing about some pretty heated meetings in oakland recently regarding five schools that the district wants
6:46 pm
to improve. it's all in the talking stages. right now. but a lot of our students rising above happen to come from those particular schools. so wendy tokuda went to one of them to see what they're dealing with. >> reporter: you know, when it comes to spending on kids in public schools, california comes in 45th in the country. and schools with a concentration of low income kids not only have greater needs, but they don't have parents or a pta with a lot of money to make up for shortages. here is a look at how that plays out at fremont high in oakland. the library of fremont high has been closed for more than six years. that's because there is no librarian. >> so you can't use the library. >> no. >> reporter: we talked to a group of students at fremont and got a tour from william varner, a student rising above and an alum here. >> this is the college center. used to be the music room which we don't have no more. >> reporter: the college center
6:47 pm
has only been open for three years run by alum jalisa collins. when she went to school here there was none. why did it take so long to get a college center here? >> because the school did not have money. >> bring it back to me. >> reporter: even now, there is only one college counselor. the kids see the shortages everywhere. >> you don't have labs? >> we don't have the supplies for labs. labs are in classes because we don't have, um, french, we only have spanish. >> reporter: they say they don't have enough paper or markers. teacher and alum michelle gonzalez buys a lot of her own supplies. >> sharpeners, the pens, i bought those, um, hole punchers. pretty much everything in here. >> reporter: the uneven playing field is evident right on the football field which is too short for regulation games. >> how can they feel enthusiastic about really trying to do a sport and it's, like, nothing much to work
6:48 pm
with. so i really feel bad that this is, like, we really don't have much. >> reporter: no baseball field, no track. so the kids have to run laps on the streets. >> the car came this way and they started shooting and driving. >> reporter: these kids showed us where one track student was shot while running right in front of the school. inside the weight room, coach and fremont alum scott alexander shows us the equipment. >> so i was here in 1984. this is still probably the same exact bench that i laid on in 1984. [ laughter ] >> reporter: all this for kids who face their own shortages at home. how many kids at your school have computers at home? >> not a lot. >> nope. >> if they have computers they probably don't have internet. >> we come not from nothing but we barely have anything. >> fremont is a good school and the potential to be even a better school if we just have
6:49 pm
money coming in. >> reporter: fremont is one of five schools that the oakland school district is focusing on to improve and it will be getting more money. if you want to help our students rising above go to college, a lot of them from schools like fremont, please go to kpix.com/sra to find out how you can donate. >> i think what's so frustrating for me at least is that everybody is paying taxes, the money goes into the state. it goes into the local school districts. why is it the not getting to the schools? any idea -- why is it not getting to the schools? >> we are paying taxes but we are 45th in the country in terms of how much we spend -- >> a lot of families and immigrants. a lot of -- you know, it costs a lot to run a school with kids who have those needs. >> which is why there is a need and your organization, you're doing the right thing by filling the need. >> we're working on it. >> one kid at a time anyway. >> working on it >> thank you.
